So, how’d you get your name?
This kid can expect this type of question many times over in the future.
Golfing fan Trey Little wrote up a contract before the Masters even started that was approved by his wife, Denise, that if Tiger actually won the entire thing, they’d named their son Tiger.
It seemed fool proof because Tiger hadn’t won a major since 2008.
The NY Post has the details:
Trey, who works with Denise at a hair-restoration practice, was bored one day at work earlier this month and half-jokingly drafted up a contract. He presented it to her in the break room: “If Tiger Woods wins the Masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son Tiger Little,” the document read.
“Would be the best comeback in the history of golf and arguably the history of modern sports,” Trey wrote in the contract.
“She laughed — and then she signed,” Trey says.
Suddenly, it was Sunday of the Masters and Tiger was walking up to the 18th hole with a two-stroke lead:
“On hole 18, we realized, ‘Wow, he’s really going to pull this thing off,” Trey Little, 25, tells The Post of Woods’ victory Sunday at the Augusta National.
The Dallas couple was so excited about Woods’ big win, it wasn’t until an hour or so later that they realized they would be having a “baby Tiger,” Trey, a lifelong golf fanatic, says.
“This whole thing started almost as a joke, then it turned into something really real, really quick.”
Now, they’re actually going to go through with it:
“We went crazy, we were so happy,” Trey says. “We were so emotional just watching him win — we would have had the same reaction even if our son’s name wasn’t involved!”
What a story this is going to be in the future.
